KYRO, MY LITTLE EGYPT BRIDE

“Kyro” no doubt is intended as an alternative spelling for “Cairo.”

In the first verse there are several disjunctures in the lyrics: “Your lips look sweet to me, Tho’ it leads to the sea… ” and “For life is sweet to Thee And more your [you’re?] sweet to me.”
In the second verse the paddling on the Nile leads to a bay, then the sea and liberty. Does the speaker plan on taking his “Egypt bride” west to Europe or America?

The sheet music includes parts for violin, saxophone, trombone and cornet printed inside the covers.

Kyro in Egypt land
In temple grand you won my heart and hand
Your lips look sweet to me
Tho’ it leads to the sea
And there to drink eternity
But love that can not be
For life is sweet to Thee
And more your sweet to me.
So dear let you and I unite.

CHORUS
We will fly By the light of the silv’ry moon
Thru the night
Star light bright whisper to us spoon
On Camels we will ride
O’er desert ocean wide
And I’ll wed in dear old Egypt
My little Egypt bride.

Kyro on dreamy Nile
In ancient style we’ll paddle you and I
Your eyes will guide the way
’till we come to the bay
There to live life’s sweet ecstacy
But love stay close to me
It all depends on Thee
Until we reach the sea
Then I’ll proclaim our liberty

Egypt
KYRO, MY LITTLE EGYPT BRIDE
